Elegant Wines

Naturally Grown

Being a native Oregonian, the journey to discover my calling to make fine wines was a journey of coming home.

Returning to my family’s ancestral home on our Yamhill County farm, I’m now the 3rd generation steward of this land and latest to tend the vineyards here. With that return as catalyst, I began handcrafting expressive and elegant wines from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in Oregon’s Willamette Valley and have been since 2006.

My deep love for and history in this valley has led me to explore its varied terroirs, as well as try to express the beauty and complexity of this place through these wines. Come by to explore or drop me a line at michael@lundeenwines.com

Poverty Bend Vineyard - Willamette Valley AVA

Located at the Lundeen ancestral farm, Poverty Bend Vineyard was first planted 32 years ago by my father and it is where many of my greatest viticultural lessons have been leared.  Smack in the middle of Yamhill County, the soils are derived from the cataclysmic Missoula Floods which deposited soils over repeated floods between 10,000 and 15,000 years ago.  The blending of our "Mon Pere" Pinot Noir and the Brut Sparkling wine always begin with grapes from Poverty Bend Vinyeard on which I am the 3rd generation Lundeen raising a 4th. 

Z'ivo Vineyard - Eola-Amity Hills AVA

Z’ivo Vineyard is nestled among beautiful rolling hills on the east side of the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. It faces the morning and so is warm and lit early in the day. It is 25 acres, originally planted by Dr. John Zelko in the mid-1990s. Our grapes come from the volcanic section at the top of the vineyard which I believe conspires to lend elegance to the resulting wine. A perennial gift from this vineyard are ripe stems which give a dry, spicy, brown/woodsy character which I feel mingles perfectly with the floral notes and ripe red fruit.

La Cantera Vineyard- Chehalem Mountains AVA

La Cantera Vineyard perches high in the Chehalem Mountains above Newberg, Oregon and has an ideal S/SW exposure. It is a 20-acre vineyard, originally planted by industry veteran John Davidson in the late 1980’s. The soil type is known as Laurelwood, formed as soil particles were gradually deposited by wind over millions of years. Pinot Noirs from Laurelwood soils very typically produce very pretty floral and fruited aromas with a rich texture yet modest tannins.
